Hair_Extension_Toolkit is an add-on that highly enhances the controllability of the hair in Blender. There are many practical functions, like merging and splitting particle systems, resetting the number, steps, and length of the guides, applying the effect of children to the guides, recording the hair selections (There is a PieMenu about hair selections), etc., thus greatly helping users improve the efficiency of the creation of the hair.
Note: This add-on is updated to support Blender 2.83. For the later Blender versions, we haven’t updated yet. Please check the versions before purchasing it to avoid the incompatibility due to the versions. Please feel free to tell us about the issue of incompatibility.
2.Hair splitting and merging:
5.Reset Hair Number:
In Object Mode or Particle Edit Mode, Hair_Extension_Toolkit can uniform the length of the hair; meanwhile, it also can keep the original shape and update the display of hair in real time.
7.Reset the settings of the particle system:
This function allows users to remodify the settings of the edited hair, reset all the parameters in the particle system but with the original guides, and apply the settings of a particle system to another particle system.
Hit Edit on the menu bar, then Preferences - Add-ons - Install, and select the zip file to install.
Do not slide Rekey, or Blender may crash easily.
Please toggle off the Mirror before using Subdivide in hair selection, otherwise Blender may crash easily or the selected hair may be not correct.
Reset Hair Number:
Please do not change the settings frequently of the edited particle systems. And you can change the settings of the hair to hair’s. Changing the settings of hair to the settings of emitter may cause the project’s damage.
When using the twist effect of the children, applying the effect of children may cause some issues of virtual parents.
Key number needs to be smaller than the key number of curves, which is to solve the issue that the curves have too many keys and reduce the key number of the hair. If needed, please add the key number of the guides by hand.
HairClump is a Blender add-on that parametrically controls the randomness of hair shapes. Multiple controls based on clumps—length control, kink control, and other various controls—makes it easier for users to style a complex hair shape through the simple guides.
HairShapeKey is a Blender add-on, supporting adding shape keys of hair, making it possible to record the transition between multiple shapes of hair-like models. Users can switch between the different shapes freely, keyframe animation, and set driver control, which makes it more controllable to style hair. Just have a try!
